New oil thinning techniques.


I came across someone talking about using linseed oil to thin the paint. I was taught to use only turpentine to thin. I didn’t have any linseed so I used this processed dollar tree extra-virgin Olive oil (which I wasn’t using) instead.

The oil paint became like acrylics. Which made me comfortable. I like this.

Oh, I had to mix the flesh tones. I’m glad I was taught how.
